In order to help educators integrate iPads effectively, we have compiled a list of apps focused on learning goals consistent with the CRCD framework. While many of these apps have also appeared in our iPads in the Classroom section, this list is driven by specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.

Superb resource for teachers and students: Storyboard Generator

Superb resource for teachers and students: Storyboard Generator | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

This is a great tool for developing storyboards based around scripts. Great for helping to visualise a text / script.

We understand that one of the greatest challenges for schools and the wider public is access to material that they can use and adapt in their own productions. The Free Media Library provides an extensive resource to fill this gap.

We encourage you and your students to upload your own creative work. Help us to build this resource for the Generator community.

Are Education Reforms Causing a Decline in Student Achievement? - Education - GOOD

Are Education Reforms Causing a Decline in Student Achievement? - Education - GOOD | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

Almost 40 years of data from the University of Bristol shows that reforms designed to boost student achievement are having the opposite effect.

Here in the United States, No Child Left Behind's emphasis on scores of "proficient" or higher on standardized tests has caused similar score inflation. The Bristol research also points to other trends, including pressure on educators to teach to the test so that students achieve high scores. Teachers often eliminate project-based learning and open-ended questions, choosing to instead train students to regurgitate facts and formulas and bubble in multiple choice responses. The emphasis on tests also makes students more likely to cram for exams at the last minute instead of retaining information over the long haul.

Denver: Education Nation: The Montbello zone of innovation  | 9news.com | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

On Wednesday, a very large bus called the Education Nation Express stopped at the Montbello campus. It is a group of schools in northeast Denver that broke off from the rest of the Denver Public School District as a "zone of innovation."

That is where Lizzy Krueger teaches science.

"There are problems in education, and you can't solve it by doing the same thing over and over again, and so you have to be creative. You have to be innovative," Krueger said.

She is part of the new Montbello.

Is Better Education the Answer to Dwindling Job Creation? | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

".....productivity has taken off, especially since the financial meltdown of 2008, and that technological innovation has contributed to the problem of fewer jobs available. The answer is always talked about in terms of more and better education. But that doesn't add up. If people are better educated, that doesn't mean there will be more jobs for them to take. Additionally, if they're better educated, they'll likely be inventing more technology to automate even more jobs...."
